Being A Responsible Motorcycle Rider

by admin, April 30, 2015

Untitled-1A topic that I feel is very important, and more relevant in just the last year with sites such as gofundme popping up. IMO being a responsible motorcycle rider simply includes taking financial precautions. I see FAR too many people crashing and running up huge medical bills or unfortunately dying – then leaving family with huge bills. Then, increasingly just throwing up a gofundme page expecting the general public to pay their bills for them. If you ride, you should have medical coverage, period. If you don’t have a regular policy, add it to your bike policy. If you have a family that depends on your income, you better have life insurance. If you don’t, you are just giving them the bird, simple as that. If you can’t afford insurance, you can’t afford to ride! Motorcycles are NOT cheap. They are not a necessity, they are not a right. They are a luxury play toy and carry great risk, some of which is 100% out of your control. Obviously I’m not saying don’t ride, or don’t take risks. But taking mature, reasonable precautions against what can and often happens, is what every rider should do. Unfortunately MANY choose otherwise, and we end up with what we have today in society.
